OWNED now available on Amazon.com
My ebook, OWNED: Why hacking continues to be a problem, is now available on Amazon.com. I’ve been patiently waiting for Smashwords to resolve its ebook “meatgrinder” issues with Amazon, so that I only have to deal with one publishing channel, but almost two months have passed and I’ve read no word of any progress.
Adding the book into Amazon was incredibly easy. I signed into the Digital Text Platform site, completed the “Add new item” form and then uploaded the book and cover. After uploading the book, I made sure it looked okay in the Kindle preview window and then clicked the “Publish” button. It took less than 10 minutes. It does take 2-3 days for the book to be buyable, but that’s not a big deal.
I’m really interested in seeing how the book is going to do on Amazon. In a way, the delay was good, because it gave me a chance to establish an online presence through this blog and Twitter.
If you’re interested in previewing the book but don’t have a Kindle, there is Kindle for PC and of course you can preview and purchase the book in many different ebook formats (including Kindle) at Smashwords.com. The book is also available on the iPad through iBooks.
